What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

“…far from science having buried God, not only do the results of science point towards his existence, but the scientific enterprise itself is validated by his existence.”- Dr.John Lennox

“A God without wrath brought men without sin into a Kingdom without judgment through the ministrations of a Christ without a Cross.”
H. Richard Niebuhr, The Kingdom of God in America

“The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of a doubt, what is laid before him.” — Leo Tolstoy, The Kingdom of God is Within You
(1894).

That would explain a lot. Three tablets, golden calf, the abyss that swallows the sinners. But 40 days and 40 nights is a bit long to exist solely on domestic berries, enhanced or not. The gastro-intestinal issues would have been ... well ... not happy, especially when you're trying to hurry carving those three tablets before the golden calf gets up and walks everyone back to Egypt. I don't think that's right. I call bullshit! No funny berries in the hot bush.

Center. At best, you could claim that both ends are its opposite - but that disproves dualism.

Re: Multi-Faceted vs Dualistic
The definition of antonym is ----- a word opposite in meaning to another (e.g. bad and good).
Synonym is antonyms opposite.
Try again.

It really does though.
Greatest I am writes:

Your "or" makes my point. there are an infinite number of off-center points.
Greatest I am writes:
Antonyms
Antonyms PLURAL. Dualism would require only ONE antonym: good/evil. If anything is kinda good or kinda evil, there is no dualism.
Greatest I am writes:

Again, "spread out" implies a large number of places where you can spread out to. It does NOT suggest an either-or dualistic situation.

What's going on? Where are all the friends I had?

Re: Multi-Faceted vs Dualistic

There are only 2 sides on a bar graph.
So, use a 2-sided bar graph to adequately describe all the different aspects involved in RvWade.
All you have done is offered a string of issues.
Yeah - 13 different issues all involved in RvWade.
You suggested RvWade was dualistic.
But the 13 different issues don't bar graph well.
Each issue has it's own graph as well in our dualistic world and thinking.
I agree many people have dualistic thinking.
But this doesn't mean that the issues we face are dualistic.
It means many people get confused using dualistic thinking when attempting to discuss multi-faceted issues.
Just as you're showing here.

Re: Multi-Faceted vs Dualistic
Your last stupid opinion is false.
Grow up a hole.
As to your "You suggested RvWade was dualistic."
As your many examples show, there are two sides.
